I don't understand the new E-vignette tolling system. How do you pay tolls as a foreigner?

Well, we bought normal 7-day vignette stickers (called matrica in Hungarian) every time we passed on Hungary's motorways... is this E-vignette any different?

The name is the cause of the problem. This only means that there are no vignettes anymore. You just buy it,and get the check,and thats all(which you have to keep for a few years...). You dont have to stick anything on the windshield anymore.
BTW,electronic system is supposedly being planned too...

Ah okay, and you can still buy that one at the regular places? (like gas stations and border stations?)

Everything is the same except what I said.

BTW,digging further,it seems electronic toll(like on austrian motorways) will be introduced in this year for vehicles heavier than 3,5 tonnes.

Hungary will have a very impressive network of motorways when all is complete. From what I can tell 3-4 east-west motorways and a spoke and hub configuration centred on Budapest. I'm wondering, for a relatively small country, is such a large network sustainable? After all such a network has to be maintained as well. What will be the total km's when all is complete? How does it compare per capita to The Netherlands or Austria, two countries of similar size? I even see another highway planned west from Mohács.

About 3000km is the currently planned length. So that is 3000km/93000km2.This is the current plan:

And its not u/c until Mohács,but until Pécs(from Dunaújváros, and yes,the branch too). M43(From Szeged) will be u/c this year too. Though the speed of constructions will probably decrease as the budget of the Ministry of transportation and economy will be about 30% lower next year.

The network is needed because of the huge volume of international traffic going across the country

Yeah, Hungary is the main hub between Western and Southeastern Europe.

The big majority of traffic has to be domestic though. Slovenia also lies at the crossroads WE-Balkans, Italy-Balkans, Italy-EE, but about 80 % of traffic is domestic.

Here's an updated map of motorways/expressways in 2030() according to the country's "master plan"(a huge detailed map on which every road,railroad,powerline,tube,etc are present,be it existing or planned)

Good point Verso. The same can be said for Serbia which receives a lot transit traffic from further southeast (Bulgaria & Turkey) and south, (Macedonia & Greece), as well as transit traffic from the opposite directions. I am not sure what percentage of motorway traffic is domestic and foreign in Serbia, I imagine 50 - 50. Granted the Serbian motorway network is fairly simple, N-S, & SE-NW, but when completed it will be able to handle most if not all of the transit traffic from those directions.
My point being that, although Hungary is more developed than Serbia, it seems that their motorway network will be perhaps five times larger than the Serbian network. There may be an issue with over capacity in the motorway network in the years to come in Hungary.

Actually,we dont build motorways/expressways only for traffic...these roads encourage industrial growth greatly along themselves. We use them to give ourselves an edge in the transportation field,compared to our neighbours.
Yellow area:fast-road(motorways/expressways) in 15min distance in 2006. Brown,in 30min.:

And the same as it is planned to be in 2015:

I'd say this is the dream of investors...dont have to worry about the transportation...

RawLee, I agree with you, I would say that Hungary is playing it smart and positioning it self to be the leader in southeast Europe in many ways. By building a better, more extensive, faster motorway network it will take more and more traffic from the Belgrad - Zagreb motorway and others in the area.
The motorway heading west from Mohács to Pécs eventually heads south west toward Croatia, where will it link on the Croatian side, and are the Croatians planning a link there?
Thanks for posting the excellent maps.

I dont really know. M60 (from Mohács to Pécs) currently will only be built until Pécs. I think M8 is the "priority" now,to provide an alternative route in the country without going to Budapest.
I cant say this chart is accurate,but for now,I accept it as a fact.
